Drivers have been advised to find alternative routes after a burst water pipe caused a road to close.

The A1000 High Road, in Finchley, is shut both ways and heavy traffic is expected between Chandos Avenue and Buckingham Avenue.

The road is also closed past the Travelodge London Whetstone, in High Road and bus routes 34, 234, 263, 326, 626 and 634 are affected.

It is not yet known when the road is expected to re-open.
